Tweetable Quotes:

  • “I bring that analytic mindset, which I think you need now more than ever, not just in sales management leadership, but also as a producer or sales rep. You just need to have that analytical mind to start to analyze your own performance and bring that to the team as well.” – Tim Rohling
  • “We have things in our mind that have worked in the past for other organizations. But every engagement is different. We need to understand you, because that’s really the only differentiator that you have in your business with everything being so competitive, and then develop the process accordingly.” – Tim Rohling
  • “A final message to sales managers, educate yourselves and start to flex your mind a little bit to be a little more collaborative.” – Tim Rohling
